  1. The Running Son
    July 22, 2013

    I can’t tell you what it really is;
    I can only tell you
    what it feels like.
    My vibrating palms
    are five points exploding–
    I’m Bruce Lee unloading see me
    feed souls and bleed light.
    Five neck punches in succession
    My death touches succeed
    when my creed’s right.
    You’ll feel me when I scream

    and bleed the way sun spots
    spew and feed blue blood karate
    energies through you
    like Pai Mei til your red
    balloon pops
    and my bubble bursts and we both
    Thank God first for
    Hollywood’s love of
    bloodsport, blood-lust

    and bloody heart thirst.
